Clos de l'Oratoire was acquired by Comte de Neipperg in 1991 and he has resurrected this property, turning it into one of the finest in St-Emilion. At Clos de l'Oratoire many traditional vineyard practices are used to keep production down, thus concentrating flavour in the wine. Grass is left to grow between the vine rows and pruning is quite severe. The vines are thinned out to keep yields down and to create the ideal natural equilibrium. Fertilizer is mostly organic, and used sparingly. The grapes are hand picked and any poor-quality ones are immediately sorted out and eliminated in the vineyard. The vintage takes place as late as possible to obtain maximum ripeness. Clos de l'Oratoire is barrel-aged for an average of 13 to 22 months (between 50 and 70% new barrels). The Merlot-dominated wines have deep colour and are redolent of dark, ripe berry fruits, with fine texture and structure.
